Monster Truck Toys
My kids are obsessed with monster trucks. We have been attending monster truck shows for years. We typically have to drive 4-6 hours to go see them and we gladly drive the distance just to get a few hours of entertainment from the very cool monster trucks. The tricks, the burnouts, the races, it’s all worth it! Bring the fun of monster trucks home with this fun DIY monster truck stadium sensory bin so they can play with their monster truck toys to their heart’s content! I’ll show you how easy it is to make one and you’ll be glad you did once you see how many hours your kids spend playing with it!
Since we go to the monster truck shows, my kids have been collecting monster trucks for years. We always have to get the newest trucks and they’ve made a point to collect as many as they can. We just stocked up on some of the newest Hot Wheels Monster Trucks that they didn’t have yet including the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Splatter Time!, Scorcher, 32 Degrees, and the Monster Mover which hauls the smaller Hot Wheels Monster Trucks! You can find all of these at Walmart.
Monster Truck Stadium Sensory Bin Supplies
To create your very own monster truck stadium at home, you’ll need:
- Hot Wheels Monster Trucks (at Walmart)
- a large bin
- play sand
- empty can (to create the jump in the middle)
Find an empty can or small bottle that you can use to create a jump in the center of your monster truck stadium. Place it in the middle of the plastic bin. Fill your bin with play sand (found at any home improvement store in the outdoor/garden area). Then sculpt the sand to be flat around the perimeter and create a jump in the center (just like a real monster truck stadium!).
Let your kids make their own racing flags using toothpicks, paper and markers. Cut a rectangle of paper and color it then fold in half and attach to a toothpick. We made checkered flags, a caution flag and a red stop flag along with a green go flag.
Add rocks to the corners of your stadium and insert the flags where you wish. Now it’s time to play!
Add the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks to the stadium and let the fun begin. Kids can race them around the outside, jump the jump in the center or whip doughnuts!
Kids can battle it out in the sand and see which monster truck comes out on top! Take the fun further and have them each vote 1-10 on each other’s tricks and runs, just like at the real monster truck shows!
See which monster truck comes out on top and let them take a victory lap!
You can also get the larger Hot Wheels Monster Trucks and play with them in the driveway! Our kids love driving them over the rocks in the driveway. Having different size monster trucks is great for varying up the play ideas.
After the monster truck show is over, it’s time to load them all up into the Monster Mover and haul them back to the garage for a tune-up! The Monster Mover was a huge hit with my boys! They absolutely loved that it would haul several of their monster trucks inside of it. It’s a great way to store them when you’re done playing too!

Pairing those cool trucks with a homemade stadium was such a good idea! The trucks are going to be a lot of fun.
That’s a great setup you made for the kids! I love the rocks and the sand. It’s the perfect setting for monster truck play.
I love the idea of using them in sand and other surfaces. That’s really brilliant and sure does make it more fun with different “terrains.”
My kids love sensory bins! I hadn’t thought of using the trucks in a bin but it’s going to happen now! We actually have a bin with Kinetic Sand in it right now that would be great!
Omgosh I dont have human kids, but I have friends who do. Sensory bins are so epic. I bet her sons, who are three years old, would love these!
I love the sensory box idea with sand. Super clever and a fun way to change things up.
My son loved Hot Wheels cars especially anything Monster Truck! We visited the shows a few times. Love the sensory bins! He would’ve loved those! Now he is too big to play with cars. My daughter does play with them once in a while.
This is such a cute idea! I am going to have to make this for my son when the weather gets cold outside.
Such a fun idea! I will have to try it with my youngest!
I love sensory bins. A MONster truck sensory bin I said a really cool idea for kids who are into cars.
The sensory bin is a great idea to use with the monster trucks. My son loves his Hot Wheels and I never thought of doing this for him.
The kids are going to have so much fun zooming around the sensory bin with their monster trucks! I love how there are so many options for imaginative play.
It is so fun to play in sand and dirt with trucks. It was the best part of playing outside.
Love the sensory bin ideas for these monster trucks. Hot Wheels never ceases to amaze me that they can still come up with new vehicles after all these years.
